Laggy paint brush input after zoom in/out

Recommended Posts

Each time I zoom in / out on my A4 canvas I have some delay for the first paint brush input (both with wacom tablet and mouse). I don't have this problem on Affinity Photo. (Same config, same brush, same canvas)

With smaller canvas it's better but I also feel the slight delay.

I tried with OpenGL and Metal to see differences but it's the same for both renderer.

Hi @SPaceBar

Wacom Intuos Pro, last macOS Catalina 10.15.5, Affinity Designer 1.8.3.

The problem happens with every brush, every sizes (but increase if the canvas is bigger). I noticed that if I wait 2-3s before drawing after I'm using the "scrubby" zoom I have no latency for the first new input. And as I said, I have no problem at all on Affinity Photo.

I have the problem with the mouse too if I'm trying to draw with it.

Hi @madPXL Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I've not been able to reproduce this. I have a Wacom Intuos Pro, macOS Catalina 10.15.5, Affinity Designer 1.8.5.

Since your original post there has been a Wacom driver update. I don't know if that has made any difference. Have you installed Driver 6.3.41-2?

Yes sorry, I can draw faster with the pen than the mouse which is why that distracted me.

I am still unable to reproduce what you are saying, needing to wait 2-3 seconds before drawing. There is a slight delay when it initialises the brush but I don't find I have to wait.

Have you tried turning on Pixel Mode on in Designer? That may improve it for you.
